Sometimes it can be difficult to eat something in the morning. Many of us grab a protein bar or a piece of fruit to eat during our commute to work, but starting the day off right with a nutritious breakfast can help you energy throughout the day. I have been searching for an easy and healthy breakfast recipe that keeps me full until lunch. I have looked at food blogs, Pinterest and recipe books and one of the most common recipes I found was an no cook, refrigerator oatmeal. I tried a few recipes, but none of them were “me”, so I experimented with some ingredients and came up with something my taste buds were excited to wake up to. My recipe is below, but the nice thing about this breakfast is that you can add anything you want to make it something you like. Many people add peanut butter, cocoa powder, different fruits, etc, so have fun experimenting until you find what works for you.
